cygwin autoconf produces configure scripts with CR/LF


The autoconf program, distributed with cygwin releases, produces
'configure' shell script with CR/LF.  This causes problems when I
distribute a program package, developed on Cygwin, to UNIX systems.
(/bin/sh<CR> not found, line concatenation by \ not working, etc.)

The problem occurs even if the directory is mounted as binmode.
Maybe the autoconf program explicitly specifies text-mode.
I think it's definitely correct to specify text mode for generating
shell scripts, such as configure... But I wish this bug is fixed in a
future release.

Can you deal with this problem?
If you say I should talk to autoconf people, I will do so.
